The 2.0i is the entry-point in the four-variant Subaru XV small SUV range, wearing an MSRP of $29,690.
While it has some major ommissions it still has some decent spec items when lined up against competitors like the Hyundai Kona, Kia Seltos, Toyota C-HR and Mitsubishi ASX. Notably impressive is the all-wheel drive system, but the base XV also scores a 6.5-inch multimedia touchscreen with wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, a 4.2-inch supervision screen, and 6.3-inch information screen, 17-inch alloy wheels with an updated design for 2021, as well as keyless entry and push-start ignition.
The 2.0i is the only XV with the smaller screen and more basic interior trims. Also omitted from the base XV is the excellent EyeSight safety suite, which includes key active safety items, but even the base XV has seven airbags and is covered by a maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating to the 2017 standards.
The base XV is powered by a 2.0-litre non-turbo four-cylinder boxer engine producing 115kW/196Nm and has a combined fuel consumption figure of 7.0L/100km. The XV can drink base 91RON unleaded and has a 63-litre fuel tank.
All XV variants have relatively large cabins and seats with decent storage areas, while all variants also share a small boot capacity of 310-litres (VDA) for the non-hybrid or 345L for hybrids.
